Roger Waters’ spectacular production of Pink Floyd’s 1979 album The Wall, will screen around the world in select movie theaters via Fathom Events on September 29. The screening will also feature an exclusive “in conversation” extra, in which Waters and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason answer fan-submitted questions.
“I hope these worldwide screenings this coming September 29th will be a good opportunity to remember, not just our fallen loved ones, but all the other guys’ fallen loved ones,” Waters said in a statement. “Ashes and diamonds, foe and friend, we were all equal in the end.”
The film captures footage shot with 4K and Dolby Atmos technology between 2010 and 2013 on the singer-songwriter’s world tour and was co-directed by Waters and the tour’s creative director, Sean Evans. Over 1.5 million people attended the tour’s 219 productions, which grossed a reported $458 million. The producers of the movie are calling the trek the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist ever.
On July 24th Waters will be headlining the Newport Folk Festival, performing what he’s called an “intimate appearance specifically crafted” for the festival. He will also play a one-off October 16 concert in Washington, D.C. as a benefit for MusiCorps. Guests at this performance so far include Billy Corgan, Tom Morello and Sheryl Crow.
Waters will also reissue his 1992 album ‘Amused to Death’ on July 24 with remastered audio on CD and a new 5.1 surround remix of the LP on Blu-ray. Look for the release to be available on vinyl as well.
